First Day of Summer


smoky smell of burgers on the grill - battles with light sabers - rain splashing on the pavement - deep conversations on a warm sun porch - spontaneous speeding down the highway - warm mochas and sweet cake pops - summer.

---

Just a little tribute to the beginning of summer and what I did on my first day free of the dark and evil clutch of school. When does school get out for you? What are your summer plans? Comment below, and remember that you are all very beautiful pickles. <3

Namarië,
Ellie

P.S. - I will be gone from Tuesday, May 31st to Wednesday, June 8th on a service trip in Guatemala. I'll likely disappear off the face of the Internet for that period of time, but posting will resume when I return. :)

    1. ICE CREAM IS ALWAYS AN EXCELLENT CHOICE. There's a local place by my house that serves the BEST dipped ice cream cones. I plan on going tomorrow!

  3. oooooooooh I hope you have a wonderful vacation! Also that poem was awesome :D
    My plans for summer include: writing this contemporary story (that's been stewing in my brain since forever)out completely in a notebook, and possibly going on a trip to visit family that I haven't seen in 1234567890 years.

    1. Awww thank you!
      Ahhh good luck! Writing in a notebook is super fun, and studies have shown it stimulates creativity more than writing on a computer. I hope you get to go on that trip!

    1. HOPEFULLY YOU WILL LOVE HIGH SCHOOL. And I've been meaning to ask: how are things going with Gil?
      GOOD LUCK ON ALL YOUR DANCE THINGS. What are intensives? Are they like auditions or training camps? Whatever they are, I'm sure you'll do fabulously.
      THANK BABE I WILL.
